Making Decisions. A Teacher's Guide [and] A Student Notebook. Revised.
Lane, Carola; And Others
The teacher's guide presents a set of eight lessons designed to help students develop the skills necessary for making responsible and effective decisions. The lessons focus on: (1) the need to make many decisions daily; (2) alternatives to decisions; (3) decisions based on values; (4) the future consequences of decisions; (5) decisions that are not as good as other decisions; (6) ways of making decisions; (7) ways of making decisions that are not as good as other ways; and (8) making good decisions by following proper decision making procedures. The student notebook allows students the opportunity to provide written responses to activities and scenarios presented. Students are encouraged to record the decisions they make during a day, to evaluate decisions made by themselves and by characters in the scenarios presented, to examine how decisions are made, and to look at alternative decisions and the consequences that may result from them. The final lesson on making decisions using proper decision making procedures ends with an exercise in which students record a problem they are faced with personally, consider a variety of alternatives and consequences, and arrive at a decision.
